* BreakupBreakout: Mr B (under his real name of Jim Burke) is the rapper for OneHitWonder Music/BritPop band Music/CollapsedLung who had one huge hit with "Eat My Goal" before going on hiatus for several years. Mr B carved out a niche in the nascent Chap-Hop genre to considerable success while the band was on hold. Recently the band reformed for performances in TheNewTens. It's pretty jarring for fans who know Burke under his Mr B persona to see him wearing a tracksuit and rapping in a working class accent about football, especially as he has to keep his dapper moustache and wears the same glasses.

* AllMenArePerverts: Yup, even the upper-class Mr B is no exception, if "More Kissing in Porn Please, We're British", "A Thoroughly Modern Breakup" or "You Just Can't" are any indication.

* ArchEnemy: Was in a feud (of sorts) with fellow chap-hop artist ProfessorElemental, which gained them both [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/5-music-videos-that-justify-existence-internet_p2/ international recognition]]. They have since guest-starred in each other's videos and recorded "The Duel" together for Elemental's latest album "Father Of Invention", which begins as a [[BattleRapping Rap Battle]] and ends with them praising each other.
